Helen was such a special friend. We met several years ago at women's meeting. We just found ourselves talking on our way out and we just clicked. Her door was always open and I loved sitting down and chatting. Belief a fellow believer was yet another bond we shared. I was so sad to have to say goodbye when she moved back home and sadder that she did t get to enjoy being home a little longer with family that she loved so much. It was a privilege to have called her my friend. Will miss her till we meet again. Love you, Helen

So glad I got to spend a week with her before she passed. We had some good talks & a few laughs.She and Judy went to Hawaii with me way back when, and she was telling me it was one of her best vacations. I will sure miss our phone conversations.

Grandma was the most intelligent woman I ever knew, a very devoted, Godly woman and loved her family so very much. She was the heart and soul of our family, and will be extremely missed by all of us.
